We booked La Tosca after reading all of the amazing reviews on TA and were really looking forward to our stay. Ettore (the owner) was really helpful before we arrived and sent through directions on how to find the hotel. Upon arrival we found out that unfortunately Ettore was out of the country while we were in Capri but his lovely father was running the show instead. When we were showed to our room we were pretty disappointed... It was tiny and the aircon had broken, they were hoping that it would be fixed soon but we never received another update during our two night stay there. We were given a fan instead but the room was so unbearably hot even with it on that it wasn't a particularly comfortable stay. When walking past other rooms we couldn't help noticing they all seemed much nicer and larger, most seemed to have a terrace or balcony from what we saw. Our room was somewhat dingy in comparison but we were never given any choice between rooms when booking (6 months prior to our stay). If we had been told there were different types of rooms we would have opted up as we did on the rest of our trip in Italy.
The hotel is kept immaculate and there is a lovely terrace where you enjoy breakfast each morning. La Tosca has a great location very central in Capri and the staff were very pleasant, I'm sure if Ettore had been around we probably would have got more out of our stay in Capri judging by the other reviews on here.
